Lithonia Lighting launches Z Series LED Striplight

Supplier News

The luminaires can be used in a wide range of retrofit and new construction applications.

| January 18, 2012

Acuity Brands has expanded its LED indoor ambient lighting portfolio with the launch of the Z Series LED striplight by Lithonia Lighting. The Z Series luminaires are compact, low-profile solid-state strips that work in a wide range of retrofit and new construction applications, including uplight and downlight in commercial, retail, manufacturing, warehouse, cove and display.  The Z Series luminaires join the portfolio of versatile Lithonia Lighting LED indoor ambient lighting products.
 
The Z Series luminaires are available in both T5 and T8 lengths, and may be surface-mounted or suspended with chain, aircraft cable or stem. The Z Series luminaires are available in white, galvanized, matte black and smoke gray finishes.
 
Each LED component is electrically and optically measured during fabrication to ensure that not even the slightest color variance is detectable by the human eye. This LED technology provides color uniformity that exceeds ANSI standards. Z Series LED striplights distribute light down and outward, eliminating shadows between fixtures and scalloped patterns on walls.
 
Z Series LED striplight fixtures are certified for use in dry and damp locations ranging from -4°F (-20°C) to 86°F (30°C). Fixtures come standard with 0-10V dimming to 10 percent.
 
Dennis Paul, senior project manager with engineering consultant DC Engineering, said it chose the new Z Series to be installed in the new Meridian Senior Center in Meridian, Idaho, to meet specific challenges.
 
“The new Meridian Senior Center was a difficult project to illuminate due to the wide range of intended usage, and a stringent 1 watt per square foot energy code allowance for this type of facility,” explained Paul. “We needed a fixture with a high lumen output for day-to-day activities, while being able to reduce the lumens for events and functions requiring lower light levels. We also needed a low-maintenance fixture that did not require lamp and ballast replacement within the next 10 years. The Z Series luminaire achieved these goals, while saving the project roughly 21 fixtures compared to fluorescent striplights.”
